    "...we don't have a gun problem..."

    Sure you don't. Clearly saying it often enough makes you believe it. StuckHere


    So prove your statement. If you think it's a gun problem, tell me why. If you don't like guns, fine. Don't like them. Other countries have similar rates of gun ownership or higher, but less violence per capita. So it's not the guns that are the issue. Maybe it's the culture or people. Just throwing it out there.

    Guns Guns Guns! Come on people! If it's not a gun, it's knife, or a shovel! People will find a way to do bodily harm! Stop turning everything into a gun debate and turn it into a civilization debate. How are we raising our children if they grow up to think this type of behavior is acceptable?

    Sometimes its best to walk away and defuse the situation!

    Nobody mentioned the guns were "legally" obtained here. But stronger laws must be enforced for violators indeed.

    There needs to be more requirements to obtain a gun or tougher laws on people inappropiately using guns. Too many people are quick to shoot these days and it's simply gotten out of hand.
